We develop and employ innovative and sustainable solutions on societal challenges by making a combination of research, innovation and action projects in collaboration with selected partners.

All-in-one 4 HER is a project funded by European Social Fund and the Flemish government. It aims to develop a fast-track integration model for Highly Educated Refugees into the Flemish labour market.
EDUC8 is an interdisciplinary, multi-track project conceptualized to build resilience in children and young people against radicalisation and polarisation in secondary schools and out-of-school settings.
Super-mentor is an ESF and Flemish Government funded project which aims to develop an online training (MOOC) for mentors who support jobseekers with migrant background to find a job in Flanders.

TRANSFORM(Fland)ERS is an ESF project co-funded by the Flemish Government. It aims to develop a blended training programme for the non-technical executives of the public and private enterprises on two important digital competencies required for the age of digitisation: AI-Centric Transformation and Cybersecurity Risk Management.
Breaking the ISIS Brand
Breaking the ISIS Brand Project makes in-depth video interviews with ISIS and al Shabaab returnees, defectors and prisoners, which are used to create counter-narrative materials with violent extremist and terrorist insiders denouncing the group as un-Islamic, corrupt and ruthless.
Mentor+ is focused on designing an intervention of non-formal education, offering the mentoring methodology to engage, connect and empower young people in conflict with the law. The main idea is to use law-abiding adults to support juveniles in the process of developing positive attitudes and behaviours. Mentor+ is also focused on digitalisation.
We aim to help the creation of artificial intelligence that improves individual and collective wellbeing without being a threat. Our mission is to provide peace of mind in Artificial Intelligence and guarantee a safe, fair artificial intelligence that ensures respect for human autonomy.
